Chris Hemsworth did the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge too: cute or too many clothes?


I really don’t understand why men aren’t taking off their shirts for the Ice Bucket Challenge. It also occurs to me that Tom Hiddleston failed to nominate his friend Chris Hemsworth during his Ice Bucket Challenge. I guess Tommy wanted to name-check his big brother Benedict Cumberbatch and his new BFF Luke Evans. What is going on with Luke and Tommy, by the way? They seem exceptionally tight these days. Anyway, Chris Hemsworth did the challenge and posted it first on his Facebook. ARMS. Very cold ARMS.

He nominated Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner and Mark Ruffalo. His Avengers buddies. Meanwhile, I nominated Chris for Dongs of Hope. Seriously, when is Dongs of Hope going to take off?

Chris’s arms are so big right now because he’s all bulked up for The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Chris has been with his boys in England for a while, filming the movie. I think he enjoys doing The Avengers movies more than the Thor movies, don’t you? More bro time.

    He didn’t take off his shirt. He needs to do it again.

  2. Sam says:

    Just an FYI, he was nominated by RDJ, so that explains why he did it.

  3. Rose says:

    Ben Affleck was the best

    • Belle says:

      Agree! Love me some Hemsworth but Ben’s was awesome! Not sure why CB isn’t posting his. Oh, maybe only negative stuff about Ben gets posted here. 😉

  4. Leaflet says:

    Haha. Love this. I think that was Liam that threw the water on him and caught him off guard. It could have been his other brother. I wish he would have gotten his wife to do it. I like her. Downey’s was cute because it was inclusive of his wife. Haha. Wish he would nominated Liam. Lol. Can’t wait to see Evans do it. Bet he nominates Anthony Mackie.

    • Belle says:

      Posted above before I read your comment. You should check out Ben Affleck’s… Jennifer and adorable laughing Affleck kid involved! 🙂

      • Leaflet says:

        OMG, I just saw it and died of cuteness.

      • Belle says:

        I know, right?? I was having a crap day, and was completely bugged about something when I happened upon Ben’s video… and I laughed out loud, then couldn’t stop myself from watching it (and giggling) several more times. 🙂

      • the other Kate says:

        Not a fan of Affleck at all, but yes, it’s great 🙂 and baby laugh is soo cute 🙂

    • Anne de Vries says:

      OK, I don’t much care for Affleck but that video made me grin hugely.

  5. Purple Unicorn says:

    That’s cool but I’m a bit against the ice bucket challenge for many reasons. The first is being how wasteful we are with the water while some people struggle to get water.

    • Linn says:

      Well, the challenge helped raising Donations of $22.9 Million to The ALS Association and in only three week. Seems like a worthy cause, if you ask me.

      • Purple Unicorn says:

        So you waste water to help raise donations? Okay.

      • Anony says:

        I feel like this is small compared to the amount of water we waste on average anyway. I cry in the shower, I waste water too 😛

      • Linn says:

        It’s a tiny amount of water compared to a huge amount of money and attention to a good cause, so yes, I’m fine with it.

        Every shower possibly takes more water than the average ice bucket and we don’t even know if it was all clean/drinking water.

        Plus, it’s not like Chris Hemsworth not doing the challenge would help those people struggling with lack of water anyway, but he does help people suffering from ALS.

        You wanna donate to an organisation like one-drop instead of the als association? Go for it!
        You wanna save water? Go for it!
        It’s the 24/7 use of water that makes the difference in terms of water- saving, not a one-time bucket.
        The one-time bucket might make a difference for all the people suffering from ALS though.

      • Jag says:

        What I wish is that with each challenge, they were also saying that an incredibly high percentage of people with ALS, MS, and some other diseases test positive for Lyme Disease! Lyme is a hidden disease because it can mimic so many others, and getting the correct treatment quickly enough can stave off it becoming a chronic condition. Maybe people will start posting that as well, along with the videos.

      @Purple Unicorn, a small bucket of water isn’t that much and isn’t wasted, it becomes part of the water cycle. One should actually be protesting against pollution of rivers overall as well as the destruction of forests worldwhile… That causes a lot of destrution. Usage of pesticides in crops pollutes the soil which destroys all aquiferous water; destruction of forest makes it more probable for the area destroyed to become barren and eventually with time turning into a desert; you know that by destroying the forests, there’s less humidity in the air, therefore, you’ll get less rain with the passing of years?
      Animal farms wastes – another way to destroy fresh, clean water.
      All sorts of industry that pollute both air and soil, thus leading to the decrease of water… I could go on giving environmental examples, but…

      Now: a 15 minute shower with the tap half closed – 135 litres of water, when a 5 minutes shower is enough;
      a bucket of water – 3 to 5 litres of water…

      So… what can I say more?

    • shay says:

      I’m with you on this one purple unicorn. It’s great that they’re raising money and awareness, but it seems like it’s so wasteful, especially considering that Southern California is experiencing a record drought.

    • joe spider says:

      So are you against swimming pools?

      • Jag says:

        Yes I’m against swimming pools if they’re chlorinated and are not part of a natural stream.

  6. kls2686 says:

    Love this, but all I’m interested in now is DONGS OF HOPE.

  7. Nuzzybear says:

    I’m thinking that we’ve seen them shirtless or close to it at their movie-shooting/CGI best – and not all of them want to keep up that insane lifestyle during non-shooting times. So, if they take off their shirts they’re afraid of the underwhelmed comments.

  8. Bliss says:

    The booty looks good too…

  9. Jenna says:

    Mmm…he looks good wet. I bet Captain Sexy will look even better. *le sigh*

    • Kimberly says:

      Ha ha!! I think both Evans and Hemsworth would look sexy shirtless while doing this. YUM lol.

  10. lunchcoma says:

    I believe Chris had already been nominated by RDJ by the time Tom got around to doing his. It’ll be fun to see the rest of the Avengers participating.

  11. Innie Outie says:

    Awww, somewhat underwhelming.. or maybe too stoic, hehe. But those arms kinda compensate for it all 😛

  12. Lady D says:

    Sorry for being so off-topic here, but does anyone know if Kelly Rutherford put her children on the plane today?

  13. shay says:

    i wonder if captain sexy is gonna do it.

    anyways, I noticed that hemsworth said ASL instead of ALS – just like his dragonfly buddy.

  14. Francis says:

    He’s so gorgeous and sexy, he sizzles. Love him. He could wear a bin bag and I’d stop and check him out.

  15. Miss M says:

    It was great! Way to CHems!!! 🙂

  16. Kimberly says:

    He should do this again but this time shirtless. 😀

    It would actually be nice to see all the male Avengers (like Aaron Taylor Johnson, Evans and Hemsworth etc.) in one vid, ALL shirtless, attempting this challenge 🙂

    Wait how dare I talk this way when it’s for a good cause LOL.

  17. Catriona says:

    Heehee he said ASL instead of ALS 🙂

    Anyhow, I love that he (like Hiddles) actually mentioned that it is for a good cause and didn’t just throw a bucket of ice water on their head without any explanation, unlike a throng of the other celebs who did it.

  18. Karen says:

    I just knew he would end up doing this eventually. Its who he is, such a great genuine guy whos kind, honest and giving. Thats why I ike him so much. Plus it doesnt matter what he wearing, he looks good wet. Now both my favorite actors have done it so it means alot to me, both my dad and uncle died from this.
